The ambitious group has signed 70 members and fostered relations with a host of organisations - from Museums Sheffield to the London Property Alliance - in the two years since it was established.

Now it is throwing open its doors to potential collaborators at a special event.

Martin McKervey, S-PA chair, said: “In two short years Sheffield Property Association has grown from an idea to an organisation that represents over 70 landowners and developers, £4bn in assets and 20,000 jobs.

“We have recently asked our members how they want it to evolve.

“We have also been putting in place a business plan that will drive the organisation forward for the coming year.

“The event on the 17th is about sharing our plans for the future but also welcoming anyone and anybody who wants to see Sheffield grow, flourish and provide opportunities for all.

“The event at Kollider is designed to welcome collaborators to explore what we can achieve together.

“Anyone with a passion for Sheffield and an appetite to contribute to change is very, very welcome.”
